THERE ARE NO SAFE SEATS:

Democrats fret over John Dingell race (JONATHAN ALLEN, 9/15/10, Politico)

Michigan Democrats are expressing concern about the political security of Rep. John D. Dingell, who has been elected to the House a record 28 times since first winning office in a 1955 special election. [...]

On Tuesday, the state party launched a Web site attacking his little-known GOP opponent, Rob Steele.

That effort—against a GOP challenger who has not been heralded by the national party—comes on the heels of Dingell ramping up his fundraising and warning donors that he needs their help to make sure he can define Steele and win a seat that only he and his father have held since 1933.
